Excerpt: Anybody who played the last attempt at an X-Files licensed title on the Playstation a few years ago will probably be a little apprehensive about The X-Files: Resist or Serve . I certainly was. As far as I’m concerned, its only natural to feel that way when you spend forty pounds on a title that is little more than a collection of grainy movies with very little plot and for that matter, very little gameplay.
Conclusion: Game progression occurs once you accomplish all of the required investigating for an area, by completing a specific goal (such as protecting your partner while they accomplish something), or by beating a specific enemy (boss-fight). During the course of the action, you are constantly updated on your current knowledge via your personal notepad. As you “learn” things in the game, their significance is then written down on your notepad for you to read as you go.
Excerpt: If there’s one thing you can say about The X-Files: Resist or Serve is that it wasn’t a rush job. The sci-fi conspiracy drama that the game is based on has been cancelled for almost two years now. But the show lives on in the hearts of loyal fans and it looks like that’s who Black Ops had in mind when it made the game.
Conclusion: will probably be of
limited interest for non-fans. And, even with the considerable pros of the game, I still
think that's true. Even though it lays out the premise pretty clearly, there's just too
much backstory for someone who never watched the show to really get into it, compared with
a game where players meet an original character and follow their story from beginning to
Conclusion: Unfortunately, the game itself is less than competent. It plays like a complete clone of the Resi and SH games, but with Mulder and Scully dropped in. If you're looking to see Mulder and Scully back in action now that the series is over, then this is perfect, but don't expect anything new or innovative to add to the survival horror genre.
Pros: Authentic stuff., Good atmosphere., Great music., Mulder's jokes!
Cons: X-Files RoS has the stupidest zombies in existence., And isn't actually very scary at all., The combat is pants.
Excerpt: D'X-Files, on retiendra plus facilement le matériau de base à savoir une somptueuse série issue de l'imagination fertile du génial Chris Carter (également auteur d'une série tout aussi exceptionnelle, Millennium) que ses adaptations vidéoludiques. Ainsi, après un jeu plus ou moins bon X-Files : The Game, Mulder et Scully reviennent dans un second titre qui sent un peu le réchauffé tant au niveau de la technique que de l'actualité, la série s'étant terminée lors d'une...
Conclusion: Empfehlen kann man Serve or Resist nur wahren Akte X-Fans, die des Englischen m�chtig sind, da es die Atmosph�re der Serie sehr gut einf�ngt und die einzige Alternative zum alten X-Files - The Game ist, wo man nicht einmal Mulder und Scully spielen konnte. Man bekommt hier 2mal 3 Folgen der Serie (einmal als Scully und einmal als Mulder), die �u�erst authentisch in Szene gesetzt wurden.
Pros: Schicke Grafik, Original-Story
Cons: Viele Ladescreens, Furchtbare Kamera, Hakelige Steuerung, Keine Lokalisierung
